What model of Claas combines where the same as the Ford ones??? Was the Fords made just for Ford???

There where a few Claas Dominator machines around here. I think the models where 113 and 115. They where new in the mid 1980s. They had 8 row heads on them. Did a good job. The dealer that sold them dropped Claas and one of the combines set out side for the next twenty years. The weather and mice destroyed the cab. I remember riding it that machine when it was new and liking the auto steer on the corn head. It was a real high tech machine for its time.

At our local Ford dealer, the Claases were red,white and blue when Ford exited the combine business. They were like that only a year or two, then they were green and white. The Dominators that I can recall from that period were the 80, 96, 106, 116, and a really big one that had a number of cylinders, one behind the other, replacing the straw walkers. I do not know what model the 642 would be equivalent to. I'm sure Haley would know, maybe he'll check back in and tell us.

Now that you mention it the ones I was talking about had the cylinders and no straw walkers. I remember thinking that if they worked that would be better than the shaking the straw walkers did from a longevity stand point.

Seems like I've heard they were a Dominator 85... a series older than the 86/96/106/116.
I'd love to have one like that.
